Despite all your strength…


The Dark Knight (2008)

During interrogation with The Batman, The Joker kept laughing ….

The Joker: Don’t talk like one of them, you’re not! Even if you’d like to be. To them, you’re just a freak, like me. They need you right now. But when they don’t, they’ll cast you out, like a leper. See, their morals, their code… it’s a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. I’ll show you, when the chips are down, these… these civilized people? They’ll eat each other. See, I’m not a monster, I’m just ahead of the curve.

Batman: [grabs Joker] Where’s Dent?

The Joker: You have all these rules and you think they’ll save you!

Lt. James Gordon: [as Batman slams Joker into the wall] He’s in control.

Batman: I have one rule.

The Joker: Oh, then that’s the rule you’ll have to break to know the truth.

Batman: [getting impatient] Which is?

The Joker: The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules.

[mimicking Batman’s voice]

The Joker: And tonight you’re gonna break your one rule.

Batman: I’m considering it.

The Joker: Oh, there’s only minutes left, so you’re gonna have to play my little game if you wanna save one of them.

Batman: [softly, fearful] Them?

The Joker: You know for awhile there, I thought you really were Dent. The way you threw yourself after her.

[Joker laughs, Batman throws Joker on table, barricades door]

The Joker: Look at you go! Does Harvey know about you and his little bunny?

Batman: [slams Joker into mirror] Where are they?

The Joker: Killing is making a choice.

Batman: [punches Joker] Where are they?

The Joker: Choose between one life or the other. Your friend, the district attorney, or his blushing bride-to-be…

[punches Joker]

The Joker: [laughs] You have nothing, nothing to threaten me with! Nothing to do with all your strength!

[grabs Joker]

The Joker: Don’t worry, I’m gonna tell you where they are. Both of them. And that’s the point. You’ll have to choose. He’s at 250 52ND Street and she’s on Avenue X, at Cicero.
